Hey there

Hi all.
Just started and have already found this forum very helpful. So thanks all.
I have had the tank (10 gallon starter) running since friday. All was well at first then somewhere between 36 and 48 hoirs in it has gone cloudy and has been for around 48 hours now. I know this is normal for a brand new tank but i have also read that it shoild sort itself out fairly quick. Should i leave it to cycle through or should i perform a small (10% or so) water change? I also have some live plants in there, not much, just a few sword grass bundles to carpet it.
Thanks in advance. Look forward to been able to progress this new hobby.

Leave it go, do you have fish or are you adding ammonia to cycle?

Read the thread in cycling your tank.

No fish yet. Was going to leave it cycle for a week then get maybe a few tetra to help it along a bit. Ive been adding aquacare bio boost to it as stated on bottle.

Please read the articles I sent you, especially the one... "I just learned about the cycle and I already have fish. "

Here is an additional thread on fish-in cycling.

I recommend fishless cycling, but have done fish-in successfully. Fish-in is a lot more work with many potential problems.
